I like duck "acrobatics!"
We spent a day up in the mountains earlier this week, and got to hike at one of our favorite spots, Lily Lake. There were lots of mallards there, working hard to find some food under the water.
These bushes were "blooming" - maybe that's what you'd call it!
When I was growing up in New York State, we called these Pussy Willows. I think this might be the first time I've noticed them in Colorado. They are so soft - I just had to reach out and touch!
This is a glimpse of the very top of Long's Peak just as we turned a bend in the trail. It is a 14,000 + foot mountain that we can also see from our house many miles away. Can you see the beaver? It's the shape that you see going along the left side of the peak - nose, back, tail.
I am so happy that my tulips survived the recent snow and windstorms we've been having. I love their pretty color!
And in the category of " Sometimes you just have to laugh!" The other day I was cutting some more pieces for my "Libby's Mystery" blocks, and when I went to sew them up, I couldn't figure out why some of the green pieces were cut 1/8 inch too small.
And then a lightbulb in my quilty brain turned on!
It doesn't really work to cut green fabric on a green mat with a yellow ruler...
After I pulled out a back up cutting mat I have that is gray, things went much better!
Happy Thursday to you! Hope you're having a great week! Don't forget to check out all of the I Like Thursday posts that are linked up at LeeAnna's place, Not Afraid of Color.
